Susan got good news at the walk-in clinic in Speedway. Nothing is broken, but she has a condition called costochondritis, which is an inflammation of the rib cartilage, caused by the blow she received last week. She got a shot of Toradol and a prescription for turbocharged ibuprofen and was sent on her way.
Welcome to a cloudy and slightly cool Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The temperature is currently 68-degrees, but it feels a little cooler than that. I was thinking the weather was to be a little sunnier and warmer than this, but it should make for perfect conditions for speed.
This morning, we head up to Indianapolis for our second of three consecutive weekends at IMS. Last week, we froze at the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. The weekend forecast looks much better for Indianapolis 500 qualifying. I shouldn’t say anything, but the long-range forecast for Race Weekend is looking pretty good. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Most of you that have followed this site very long know that I’ve never hidden the fact that I’m not a huge fan of Mark Miles, who seems to hold several titles within his organization – Chairman of the Board of Hulman & Company, Chairman of Hulman Motorsports and IndyCar CEO.

One thing about going to Indianapolis, there has never been a shortage of things to do if you are a race fan. But in case you have run out of new things to do – now there is one. Last month, former car-owner and popular driver Sarah Fisher and husband Andy O’Gara opened up Speedway Indoor Karting (SIK) on Main Street in Speedway. It is located directly across the street from Charlie Brown’s Pancake & Steakhouse and next door to her old shop and current home to Ed Carpenter Racing.
